Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • Leverage Executable Code in Non-Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's trust in configuration and resource files, when the executable loads the resource (such as an image file or configuration file) the attacker has modified the file to either execute malicious code directly or manipulate the target process (e.g. application server) to execute based on the malicious configuration parameters. Since systems are increasingly interrelated mashing up resources from local and remote sources the possibility of this attack occurring is high. The attack can be directed at a client system, such as causing buffer overrun through loading seemingly benign image files, as in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028 where specially crafted JPEG files could cause a buffer overrun once loaded into the browser. Another example targets clients reading pdf files. In this case the attacker simply appends javascript to the end of a legitimate url for a pdf (http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/danger-danger-danger/) http://path/to/pdf/file.pdf#whatever_name_you_want=javascript:your_code_here The client assumes that they are reading a pdf, but the attacker has modified the resource and loaded executable javascript into the client's browser process. The attack can also target server processes. The attacker edits the resource or configuration file, for example a web.xml file used to configure security permissions for a J2EE app server, adding role name "public" grants all users with the public role the ability to use the administration functionality. The server trusts its configuration file to be correct, but when they are manipulated, the attacker gains full control.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.

    description Updated tomcat6 packages that fix one security issue are now available for JBoss Enterprise Web Server 2.0.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section. Apache Tomcat is a servlet container. It was found that when an application used FORM authentication, along with another component that calls request.setUserPrincipal() before the call to FormAuthenticator#authenticate() (such as the Single-Sign-On valve), it was possible to bypass the security constraint checks in the FORM authenticator by appending '/j_security_check' to the end of a URL. A remote attacker with an authenticated session on an affected application could use this flaw to circumvent authorization controls, and thereby access resources not permitted by the roles associated with their authenticated session. (CVE-2012-3546) Warning: Before applying the update, back up your existing JBoss Enterprise Web Server installation (including all applications and configuration files). Users of Tomcat should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue. Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take effect.

    description Updated JBoss Enterprise Web Platform 5.2.0 packages that fix multiple security issues, various bugs, and add several enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. This JBoss Enterprise Web Platform 5.2.0 release serves as a replacement for JBoss Enterprise Web Platform 5.1.2, and includes bug fixes and enhancements. As JBoss Enterprise Web Platform is a subset of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, refer to the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2.0 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes. The Release Notes will be available shortly from https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/ An attack technique against the W3C XML Encryption Standard when block ciphers were used in CBC mode could allow a remote attacker to conduct chosen-ciphertext attacks, leading to the recovery of the entire plain text of a particular cryptogram. (CVE-2011-1096) JBoss Web Services leaked side-channel data when distributing symmetric keys (for XML encryption), allowing a remote attacker to recover the entire plain text form of a symmetric key. (CVE-2011-2487) Spring framework could possibly evaluate Expression Language (EL) expressions twice, allowing a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application server, or to obtain sensitive information from the server. Manual action is required to apply this fix. Refer to the Solution section. (CVE-2011-2730) Apache CXF checked to ensure XML elements were signed or encrypted by a Supporting Token, but not whether the correct token was used. A remote attacker could transmit confidential information without the appropriate security, and potentially circumvent access controls on web services exposed via Apache CXF. Refer to the Solution section for details. (CVE-2012-2379) When an application used FORM authentication, along with another component that calls request.setUserPrincipal() before the call to FormAuthenticator#authenticate() (such as the Single-Sign-On valve), it was possible to bypass the security constraint checks in the FORM authenticator by appending '/j_security_check' to the end of a URL. (CVE-2012-3546) The JMX Console was vulnerable to CSRF attacks, allowing a remote attacker to hijack the authenticated JMX Console session of an administrator. (CVE-2011-2908) An XSS flaw allowed a remote attacker to perform an XSS attack against victims using the JMX Console. (CVE-2011-4575) SecurityAssociation.getCredential() returned the previous credential if no security context was provided. Depending on the deployed applications, this could possibly allow a remote attacker to hijack the credentials of a previously-authenticated user. (CVE-2012-3370) Configuring the JMX Invoker to restrict access to users with specific roles did not actually restrict access, allowing remote attackers with valid JMX Invoker credentials to perform JMX operations accessible to roles they are not a member of. (CVE-2012-5478) twiddle.sh accepted credentials as command line arguments, allowing local users to view them via a process listing. (CVE-2009-5066) NonManagedConnectionFactory logged the username and password in plain text when an exception was thrown. This could lead to the exposure of authentication credentials if local users had permissions to read the log file. (CVE-2012-0034) The JMXInvokerHAServlet and EJBInvokerHAServlet invoker servlets allow unauthenticated access by default in some profiles. The security interceptor's second layer of authentication prevented direct exploitation of this flaw. If the interceptor was misconfigured or inadvertently disabled, this flaw could lead to arbitrary code execution in the context of the user running the JBoss server. (CVE-2012-0874) The JGroups diagnostics service was enabled with no authentication when a JGroups channel was started, allowing attackers on the adjacent network to read diagnostic information. (CVE-2012-2377) CallerIdentityLoginModule retained the password from the previous call if a null password was provided. In non-default configurations this could possibly lead to a remote attacker hijacking a previously-authenticated user's session. (CVE-2012-3369) Red Hat would like to thank Juraj Somorovsky of Ruhr-University Bochum for reporting CVE-2011-1096 and CVE-2011-2487; the Apache CXF project for reporting CVE-2012-2379; and Tyler Krpata for reporting CVE-2011-4575. CVE-2012-3370 and CVE-2012-3369 were discovered by Carlo de Wolf of Red Hat; CVE-2012-5478 discovered by Derek Horton of Red Hat; CVE-2012-0874 discovered by David Jorm of Red Hat; and CVE-2012-2377 was discovered by Red Hat.

    description It was found that when an application used FORM authentication, along with another component that calls request.setUserPrincipal() before the call to FormAuthenticator#authenticate() (such as the Single-Sign-On valve), it was possible to bypass the security constraint checks in the FORM authenticator by appending '/j_security_check' to the end of a URL. A remote attacker with an authenticated session on an affected application could use this flaw to circumvent authorization controls, and thereby access resources not permitted by the roles associated with their authenticated session. (CVE-2012-3546) A flaw was found in the way Tomcat handled sendfile operations when using the HTTP NIO (Non-Blocking I/O) connector and HTTPS. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (infinite loop). The HTTP blocking IO (BIO) connector, which is not vulnerable to this issue, is used by default in Scientific Linux 6. (CVE-2012-4534) Multiple weaknesses were found in the Tomcat DIGEST authentication implementation, effectively reducing the security normally provided by DIGEST authentication. A remote attacker could use these flaws to perform replay attacks in some circumstances. (CVE-2012-5885, CVE-2012-5886, CVE-2012-5887) Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take effect.

  • NASL family Web Servers
    NASL id TOMCAT_7_0_30.NASL
    description According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.0 listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.30. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities : - An error related to chunked transfer encoding and extensions allows limited denial of service attacks. (CVE-2012-3544) - An error exists related to FORM authentication that allows security bypass if 'j_security_check' is appended to the request. (CVE-2012-3546) - Replay-countermeasure functionality in HTTP Digest Access Authentication tracks cnonce values instead of nonce values, which makes it easier for attackers to bypass access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests. (CVE-2012-5885) - HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation caches information about the authenticated user, which allows an attacker to bypass authentication via session ID. (CVE-2012-5886) - HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation does not properly check for stale nonce values with enforcement of proper credentials, which allows an attacker to bypass restrictions by sniffing requests. (CVE-2012-5887) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2013-0195.NASL
    description Updated JBoss Enterprise Web Platform 5.2.0 packages that fix multiple security issues, various bugs, and add several enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. This JBoss Enterprise Web Platform 5.2.0 release serves as a replacement for JBoss Enterprise Web Platform 5.1.2, and includes bug fixes and enhancements. As JBoss Enterprise Web Platform is a subset of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, refer to the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2.0 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes. The Release Notes will be available shortly from https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/ An attack technique against the W3C XML Encryption Standard when block ciphers were used in CBC mode could allow a remote attacker to conduct chosen-ciphertext attacks, leading to the recovery of the entire plain text of a particular cryptogram. (CVE-2011-1096) JBoss Web Services leaked side-channel data when distributing symmetric keys (for XML encryption), allowing a remote attacker to recover the entire plain text form of a symmetric key. (CVE-2011-2487) Spring framework could possibly evaluate Expression Language (EL) expressions twice, allowing a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application server, or to obtain sensitive information from the server. Manual action is required to apply this fix. Refer to the Solution section. (CVE-2011-2730) Apache CXF checked to ensure XML elements were signed or encrypted by a Supporting Token, but not whether the correct token was used. A remote attacker could transmit confidential information without the appropriate security, and potentially circumvent access controls on web services exposed via Apache CXF. Refer to the Solution section for details. (CVE-2012-2379) When an application used FORM authentication, along with another component that calls request.setUserPrincipal() before the call to FormAuthenticator# authenticate() (such as the Single-Sign-On valve), it was possible to bypass the security constraint checks in the FORM authenticator by appending '/ j_security_check' to the end of a URL. (CVE-2012-3546) The JMX Console was vulnerable to CSRF attacks, allowing a remote attacker to hijack the authenticated JMX Console session of an administrator. (CVE-2011-2908) An XSS flaw allowed a remote attacker to perform an XSS attack against victims using the JMX Console. (CVE-2011-4575) SecurityAssociation.getCredential() returned the previous credential if no security context was provided. Depending on the deployed applications, this could possibly allow a remote attacker to hijack the credentials of a previously-authenticated user. (CVE-2012-3370) Configuring the JMX Invoker to restrict access to users with specific roles did not actually restrict access, allowing remote attackers with valid JMX Invoker credentials to perform JMX operations accessible to roles they are not a member of. (CVE-2012-5478) twiddle.sh accepted credentials as command line arguments, allowing local users to view them via a process listing. (CVE-2009-5066) NonManagedConnectionFactory logged the username and password in plain text when an exception was thrown. This could lead to the exposure of authentication credentials if local users had permissions to read the log file. (CVE-2012-0034) The JMXInvokerHAServlet and EJBInvokerHAServlet invoker servlets allow unauthenticated access by default in some profiles. The security interceptor's second layer of authentication prevented direct exploitation of this flaw. If the interceptor was misconfigured or inadvertently disabled, this flaw could lead to arbitrary code execution in the context of the user running the JBoss server. (CVE-2012-0874) The JGroups diagnostics service was enabled with no authentication when a JGroups channel was started, allowing attackers on the adjacent network to read diagnostic information. (CVE-2012-2377) CallerIdentityLoginModule retained the password from the previous call if a null password was provided. In non-default configurations this could possibly lead to a remote attacker hijacking a previously-authenticated user's session. (CVE-2012-3369) Red Hat would like to thank Juraj Somorovsky of Ruhr-University Bochum for reporting CVE-2011-1096 and CVE-2011-2487; the Apache CXF project for reporting CVE-2012-2379; and Tyler Krpata for reporting CVE-2011-4575. CVE-2012-3370 and CVE-2012-3369 were discovered by Carlo de Wolf of Red Hat; CVE-2012-5478 discovered by Derek Horton of Red Hat; CVE-2012-0874 discovered by David Jorm of Red Hat; and CVE-2012-2377 was discovered by Red Hat.

    description The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates : - java/org/apache/coyote/http11/InternalNioInputBuffer.jav a in the HTTP NIO connector in Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.36 and 7.x before 7.0.28 does not properly restrict the request-header size, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a large amount of header data. (CVE-2012-2733) - org/apache/catalina/realm/RealmBase.java in Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.36 and 7.x before 7.0.30, when FORM authentication is used, allows remote attackers to bypass security-constraint checks by leveraging a previous setUserPrincipal call and then placing /j_security_check at the end of a URI. (CVE-2012-3546) - org/apache/catalina/filters/CsrfPreventionFilter.java in Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.36 and 7.x before 7.0.32 allows remote attackers to bypass the cross-site request forgery (CSRF) protection mechanism via a request that lacks a session identifier. (CVE-2012-4431) - org/apache/tomcat/util/net/NioEndpoint.java in Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.36 and 7.x before 7.0.28, when the NIO connector is used in conjunction with sendfile and HTTPS, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) by terminating the connection during the reading of a response. (CVE-2012-4534) - The replay-countermeasure functionality in the HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.36, 6.x before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 tracks cnonce (aka client nonce) values instead of nonce (aka server nonce) and nc (aka nonce-count) values, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1184. (CVE-2012-5885) - The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.36, 6.x before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 caches information about the authenticated user within the session state, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass authentication via vectors related to the session ID. (CVE-2012-5886) - The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.36, 6.x before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 does not properly check for stale nonce values in conjunction with enforcement of proper credentials, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests.

    description Updated JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2.0 packages that fix multiple security issues, various bugs, and add several enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. This JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2.0 release serves as a replacement for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1.2, and includes bug fixes and enhancements. Refer to the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2.0 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes. The Release Notes will be available shortly from https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/ An attack technique against the W3C XML Encryption Standard when block ciphers were used in CBC mode could allow a remote attacker to conduct chosen-ciphertext attacks, leading to the recovery of the entire plain text of a particular cryptogram. (CVE-2011-1096) JBoss Web Services leaked side-channel data when distributing symmetric keys (for XML encryption), allowing a remote attacker to recover the entire plain text form of a symmetric key. (CVE-2011-2487) Spring framework could possibly evaluate Expression Language (EL) expressions twice, allowing a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application server, or to obtain sensitive information from the server. Manual action is required to apply this fix. Refer to the Solution section. (CVE-2011-2730) Apache CXF checked to ensure XML elements were signed or encrypted by a Supporting Token, but not whether the correct token was used. A remote attacker could transmit confidential information without the appropriate security, and potentially circumvent access controls on web services exposed via Apache CXF. Refer to the Solution section for details. (CVE-2012-2379) When an application used FORM authentication, along with another component that calls request.setUserPrincipal() before the call to FormAuthenticator#authenticate() (such as the Single-Sign-On valve), it was possible to bypass the security constraint checks in the FORM authenticator by appending '/j_security_check' to the end of a URL. (CVE-2012-3546) The JMX Console was vulnerable to CSRF attacks, allowing a remote attacker to hijack the authenticated JMX Console session of an administrator. (CVE-2011-2908) An XSS flaw allowed a remote attacker to perform an XSS attack against victims using the JMX Console. (CVE-2011-4575) SecurityAssociation.getCredential() returned the previous credential if no security context was provided. Depending on the deployed applications, this could possibly allow a remote attacker to hijack the credentials of a previously-authenticated user. (CVE-2012-3370) Configuring the JMX Invoker to restrict access to users with specific roles did not actually restrict access, allowing remote attackers with valid JMX Invoker credentials to perform JMX operations accessible to roles they are not a member of. (CVE-2012-5478) twiddle.sh accepted credentials as command line arguments, allowing local users to view them via a process listing. (CVE-2009-5066) NonManagedConnectionFactory logged the username and password in plain text when an exception was thrown. This could lead to the exposure of authentication credentials if local users had permissions to read the log file. (CVE-2012-0034) The JMXInvokerHAServlet and EJBInvokerHAServlet invoker servlets allow unauthenticated access by default in some profiles. The security interceptor's second layer of authentication prevented direct exploitation of this flaw. If the interceptor was misconfigured or inadvertently disabled, this flaw could lead to arbitrary code execution in the context of the user running the JBoss server. (CVE-2012-0874) The JGroups diagnostics service was enabled with no authentication when a JGroups channel was started, allowing attackers on the adjacent network to read diagnostic information. (CVE-2012-2377) CallerIdentityLoginModule retained the password from the previous call if a null password was provided.

  • NASL family Web Servers
    NASL id TOMCAT_6_0_36.NASL
    description According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 6.0 listening on the remote host is prior to Tomcat 6.0.36. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A flaw exists within the parseHeaders() function that allows for a crafted header to cause a remote denial of service. (CVE-2012-2733) - An error exists related to FORM authentication that allows a security bypass if 'j_security_check' is appended to the request. (CVE-2012-3546) - An error exists in the file 'filters/CsrfPreventionFilter.java' that allows cross-site request forgery (XSRF) attacks to bypass the filtering. This can allow access to protected resources without a session identifier. (CVE-2012-4431) - An error exists related to the 'NIO' connector when HTTPS and 'sendfile' are enabled that can force the application into an infinite loop. (CVE-2012-4534) - Replay-countermeasure functionality in HTTP Digest Access Authentication tracks cnonce values instead of nonce values, which makes it easier for attackers to bypass access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests. (CVE-2012-5885) - The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation caches information about the authenticated user, which allows an attacker to bypass authentication via session ID. (CVE-2012-5886) - The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation does not properly check for stale nonce values with enforcement of proper credentials, which allows an attacker to bypass restrictions by sniffing requests. (CVE-2012-5887) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
